Mandatory electronic filing for tax preparers

Starting in 2013, tax preparers who prepare more than 10 returns will be required to file them electronically. Mandatory electronic filing applies to the filing of both T1 General income tax and benefit returns and T2 corporation income tax returns for the 2012 and later tax years.

Q1.I am a tax preparer; how will this affect me?

A1. If you are an individual, a corporation or a partnership, and you accept payment to prepare more than 10 T1 General income tax and benefit returns or more than 10 T2 corporation income tax returns per year, you must file those returns electronically. An employee who prepares returns as part of their work duties is not a tax preparer.

Q2. Are there any exceptions to the new legislation?

A2. The following returns do not need to be filed electronically:

Other exceptions apply to T1 returns if you are a tax preparer who:

  • applied to use EFILE, but was not accepted; or
  • had EFILE privileges suspended or revoked.

If you also file T2 returns, you must use one of the other methods to electronically submit T2 returns. For more information on how to file corporation returns electronically, go to Corporation Internet Filing .

Q3. How do I file electronically?

A3. If you prepare and file more than 10 T1 General income tax and benefit returns, you will be required to file them electronically through the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) EFILE system. EFILE is an automated service that permits approved tax preparers to file current year income tax and benefit returns online.

If you prepare and file more than 10 T2 corporation income tax returns, you will be required to file them electronically through the available service in Represent a Client or through Corporation Internet Filing.

Q4. I have never filed electronically. How do I start?

A4. As a tax preparer, you will need to register with the CRA in order to be allowed to file T1 General income tax and benefit returns electronically. This must be done at least 30 days before the service is required.

For more information on how to register for T1 General returns, go to Apply for EFILE .

For more information on how to register for T2 corporation returns or how to file corporation returns electronically, go to Corporation Internet Filing .

Q5. I currently file my clients’ returns electronically. Do I need to re-register?

A5. If you currently file your clients’ returns electronically with an EFILE number, you need to renew your EFILE eligibility every year. As such, you will be contacted to renew your registration every year in late October.

Q6. I use in-house software to file returns for my clients, but I don’t use EFILE. What do I do?

A6. Your software package will need to be certified by the CRA before you can use it to file electronically. To find out more about certification:

Q7. Are there penalties if I do not comply with the new legislation?

A7. If you are required to file electronically but do not comply, you may be charged a penalty of $25 for each T1 General return that is paper-filed and $100 for each T2 corporation return that is paper-filed.

Q8. Where can I get help to file returns electronically?

A8. For T1 General returns, contact your EFILE Helpdesk .

Q9. I am a tax preparer in Quebec, does this also apply to me?

A9. Revenu Québec also requires tax preparers who prepare more than 10 personal or corporation income tax returns in Quebec to file these returns online. The requirement does not apply to trust returns.

2012/2013 SARS EFiling Tax Returns

Keeping up to date with SARS, especially the different types of tax regulations and dates, is far from an easy task. These days you almost need a tax degree to understand everything that is required from you as taxpayer. So in this article, we ll mention some important things to consider as well as important dates pertaining to your tax return.

The SARS filing season is well underway, with taxpayers having the benefit of free, secure tax filing (eFiling) via the Internet. If you choose to do your tax return using eFiling, the submission deadline automatically extends as set for manual submissions. The eFiling system populates your income tax return using information provided by your employer.

eFiling tax return for salary earning individuals is quite simple, however it becomes complicated when you have to submit details pertaining to foreign income, capital gains or losses and local business, trade and professional income. Below are listed some important questions relating to these types of income.

What if you earn foreign income and the foreign institution has deducted a withholding tax? In certain circumstances the withholding tax is deductable from South African tax payable.

With regards to capital gains and losses, what is required to ensure you claim the appropriate base cost or exclusions?

How do you ensure you claim all appropriate expenditure against business trade or professional income?

How do you explain to SARS a sudden increase in your net assets arising from non-taxable receipts (reflecting in your statement of assets and liabilities)?

If you fail to submit your tax return or make changes in personal particulars in due time penalties will incur. The penalty depends on your tax-paying category, which is determined by your taxable income, and can range from R250 to R16 000 per month.

The deadline for company tax returns (including close corporations) is much different than for individuals. The deadline is 12 months after the financial year-end.

Fraud e-mails claiming they are SARS, saying tax refunds will be paid into your bank account, and requests your bank details. Don t fall for this. SARS will never request your banking details via e-mail or SMS.

For any questions with regards to eFiling tax returns, please consult Tax Relax for professional assistance.

Map: Median income in Los Angeles by Zip code

For our series Fault Lines. we re exploring how our incomes unite and divide us. Part of that process is actually mapping out those divisions. So we ve put together a map of Los Angeles County where you can see the median income of each individual Zip code. Click on your Zip code and compare your own income to the median in your area. And click on other Zip codes to see how yours stacks up.

no way. double it.

I think it would be helpful to include how these numbers were gathered. There s nothing (that I saw) that provides evidence that these numbers are accurate. Also-I d be curious about comparing the median income to the mean income.

There has to be some mistake. Hancock Park right next door is $36K and Park La Brea where I live in $72k.

Seeing the actual distribution (median, mean, standard dev, or even a PDF/histogram) for each zip would be really interesting. Comparing it to other economic measures like home price and rents would be even more telling. And knowing the trends of each of those would be epically disappointing, I think.

Nice map! How did they do this? I d like to build a map like this for certain areas in the US. Let me know. Thanks.

I wonder where they got their info from. On the other hand knowing how my neighborhood is just doesn t match up with the stats. They placed my area at $38k. The area I live in appears to be a blighted area with no onset of gentrification.

Is this survey up to date? Average median income Downtown LA on this map is from $16K to $22K… but Downtown LA did its own survey couple years ago, median income is $85K. With its high rent and luxury loft/condos, as a DTLA resident, I highly doubt this is accurate.

http://www.ghostmantis.com/ Ghost Mantis Games

I agree. I lived in DTLA for 5 years and was paying $2,000 a month for a 1,000 square foot loft and everyone I know was making decent cash. Like you said, it was mostly due to the fact that they re-introduced a lot of old buildings as luxury lofts. This has to be inaccurate.

Needs more differentiation with the colors used.


I need median household income for all zip codes in California #online #filing #of #income

#household income by zip code

#

These data are available from American FactFinder on the Census Bureau’s web site for the year 2000.:

The data you are trying to obtain can be located in Table HCT012. Median household income for California.

I ve downloaded all zip codes for the nation (

33,000) and selected several tables you might be interested in:

Median household income
Median household income (black householder)
Median household income (Asian householder)
Median household income (non-Hispanic white householder
Median household income (Hispanic householder

The data are a pipe delimited text file:

44 | 567 | 345 | etc.

You can read it via Excel. Most statistical packages can handle delimiters as well.

In areas where the population of a subgroup is small, the median household income for that subgroup will not be reported. For instance, in the first zip code (00601), the median household income in 2000 was $9,888. The values for the subgroups is: blacks ($7,250), Asians (blank); Hispanics ($9,874), and white, non-Hispanics ($11,250). The data look like this:

One other thing you ll notice is that on occasion there are zip codes that end in an HH or an XX. Zip codes are not census geography. The Census Bureau builds these from census tracts and uses the XX and HH coding to indicate uncertainty about the zip code assignment and water respectively. Here s more about the HH and XX codes:

If you have trouble using this file, let me know. I can shrink it down to your original request (California zip codes 90001 96162 and median household income).

Income Tax Return

Tax is a central element to the revenue generation system of the Indian government. Among the multitude of taxes present in the system, income tax is the one that deals with the taxation of the earning of every individual, firm or organisation in a financial year. The earning or income could be in the form of regular wages, interest, dividends, capital gains or any other profits.

What is a Return of Income?

A return of income is a defined form which can list out the particulars of income and the taxes paid on the same by an individual, firm or organisation in a financial year. This in turn can be presented to the Income Tax Department. There are differing forms for incomes of different status and nature and they are readily available on the online portal of the Income Tax Department of India.

There are currently nine different forms available for filing of income tax returns. They go from ITR-1 to ITR-7 and also include the ITR-4S and ITR-V.

Filing an Income Tax Return – Is it Necessary?

Currently (as of 2015), is mandatory for one to file income tax returns in India if the following conditions are applicable –

  • If the gross total annual income (before deductions under 80C to 80U) is Rs. 2,50,000 (for ages less than 60 years), Rs. 3,00,000 (for ages 60 years but less than 80 years) and Rs. 5,00,000 (for ages 80 years and above)
  • If it’s a company or firm, irrespective of the profit or loss made in a financial year
  • If a tax refund needs to be claimed
  • If a loss under a head of income needs to be carried forward
  • If being a resident of India, one has an asset or financial interest in any entity located outside India
  • If being a resident of India, one is a signing authority in a foreign account
  • If one receives income derived from property held under a trust for charitable or religious purposes or a political party or a research association, news agency, educational or medical institution, trade union, a not for profit university or educational institution, a hospital, infrastructure debt fund, any authority, body or trust
  • If one is applying for a loan or a visa

If an NRI derives any or all of his/her income through sources in India, that income is liable to be taxable in India, and income tax returns for the same will be necessary.

With the implementation of e-filing of Income Tax Returns, the following cases will require an e-filing of Income Tax:

  • In case a refund is required
  • In case the gross total annual income exceeds Rs. 5,00,000
  • In case an income tax refund is required
  • ITR-3, 4,5,6,7 have to be mandatorily e-filed

Income Tax Returns – Explanation on the Forms:

The various forms that are available for the purpose of income tax returns have the following functionality –

  3. The Tax Deducted at Source (TDS) of the Form 16 should tally with the ones in Form 26AS
  4. Tax Return for the current year – Under the ‘Download’ menu, click on Income Tax Return Forms and choose the current financial year. The appropriate ITR form should be downloaded. There is an option to complete the process on the portal itself, through the ‘Quick e-file ITR’ link

  7. Confirm all the information through the ‘Validate’ tab
  8. Generate an ‘XML file’ and save it on your local disk on the computer
  9. Upload Return – After selecting the current financial year in the ‘Upload Return’ link on the portal’s left hand navigation area, select the XML file that had been saved earlier. There might be an option to digitally sign the file. In case you have a digital signature, choose ‘Yes’ else ‘No’
  10. ITR – V – If the process of filing has been completed successfully, the website will flash an appropriate message and you will be able to download the acknowledgement form, the ITR-V
  11. A printed copy of the ITR-V needs to be signed by you and sent to the Income Tax Department office nearest to you through normal or Speed Post within 120 days of filing the return

Apart from the official site operated by the Government of India, there are many private portals that allow filing of returns and charge a specific fee depending upon the service level they offer.

Benefits of Filing Income Tax Return Online

Though it might be a tedious process to keep a track of every nifty detail needed in order to file the proper details for the Income Tax Return, it actually helps a lot when it is done in the earnest and ahead of time, preferably, online –

  1. Online filing of returns ends by July 31 or every financial year, and being a month or two in advance in filing the income tax returns actually ensures one encounters lesser traffic and the entire process goes much smoother.
  2. In case one has missed filing tax returns for the previous year, every additional day till July 31 increases the penal interest. Thus, filing a tax return in advance is very advisable.
  3. Creating a favourable financial history – Online filing of the income tax returns actually creates a history of your financial records with the tax department in a much faster and easier way. This history is favoured by a lot of organisations, be it financial or otherwise, whom you might have a business relationship with in the future.
  4. Proof of financial record – Having an ITR-V form is always handy, since one can readily furnish the same as a proof for any kind of financial liability or opening a line of credit.

Frequently Asked Questions: Income Tax Return

  1. I am a self-employed professional. My income this year is below the minimum income tax slab, but it was higher in the previous 2 years and I had filed ITRs then. Do I have to file a return this year?

A) Ideally, if your income is below the minimum slab, you do not need to file your income tax return. But if you have been filing it previously, it would be better if you file a return this year declaring low income. This is because the Income Tax Department may construe your non-filing as a delay or non-compliance because of your past record of filing ITR. They might send you a notice. In case you do not want to file ITR, be prepared to reply to the income tax notice if it comes into your mail box.

  • If I have already paid advance taxes and have no dues or refunds, can I skip filing of income tax return?

    A) No, you have to file your ITR especially if you have paid the taxes. It is not an optional activity. An ITR gives the government a complete record of how your income is distributed – assets, total income, tax liability, tax paid and refunds. This helps them monitor people for tax fraud of any kind. If you fail to file ITR, you are liable to pay penalty or face scrutiny and prosecution.

  • Is an ITR useful to me in daily life?

    A) Of course, yes. You’ll find a duly-filed ITR very useful as a proof of income when you have to apply for a bank loan, when you have to make accident claims in third party insurance, for immigration and visa, for appointment in judicial and class 1 jobs, for winning government tenders, for registration in professional panels, for seeking funding for a startup, etc.

  • How long do we need to wait to get income tax refund?

    A) Refunds are disbursed only after your ITR is processed. This may take up to 1 year after you file your return. It is also possible that even if you are claiming refund, the taxman may have ascertained that you are not liable for a refund for various reasons such as a calculation error on your part. If you think your calculations are right and you have to get a refund, then you can write to the I-T Department again. Sometimes, you do not get a refund because of wrong PAN or bank account number on the ITR, or the cheque not reaching you because of wrong address or you not being at home when the postman reached. If you filed your ITR online, you can check the status of your refund through your Income Tax e-filing account.
